Four Planes Detailed for JASF

By Michelle Balsan, 6 years ago
Though it's already been out in North America since October, Koch Media is making sure the upcoming European release of their air combat title gets all the attention any other new release would.

To that end, they've released screens and descriptions of four of the planes featured in the title: the American fighter jet F-4 Phantom II, the stealth versatile fighter aircraft F-35 Lightning, and the Soviet fighter jets MiG-21 and MiG-29.


The American F-4 Phantom II is an all-weather, long-range, supersonic fighter jet with fighter bomber abilities. It was used by the USA between 1961 and 1995 and is still used by other countries, for example Germany. The F-4 Phantom II reach a top speed of more than 2.300 km/h and carry up to 8.400 kg.

The F-35 Lightning II is an improved version of the experimental aircraft X-35, the winner of the “Joint Strike Fighter Progam” of the Department of Defense of the USA. It is considered as the first stealth multirole fighter.
MiG 21

The supersonic jet fighter aircraft MiG-21 is also known under his NATO nickname “Fishbed”. The airplane was first brought into service in 1959 and it was used by more than 50 countries. Since World War II more than 11.000 units of the MiG-21 were produced – that makes the aircraft one of the world’s most used fighter aircrafts.
MiG 29

The MiG-29 “Fulcrum” was as well produced by the Soviet aircraft company Mikojan-Gurewitsch. It was developed as an counter piece for the American aircrafts F-15 Eagle and F-16 Fighting Falcon. Amongst other things it is used to defend airports and cities.
Jane's Advanced Strike Fighters, which will include 16 missions and 30 detailed fighter jets from the USA, Russia, Europe, and China, will be available in Europe on March 2nd.
